10:15 pm
10:16 pm
the ufc on fox is sponsored by -- >> mike: four spectacular fights here tonight. live on fox. so much on the line in the final two light heavyweight battles. with more, here is joe rogan with ufc president dana white. >> joe: what a night! mike swick, joe lauzon, lyoto machido, "shogun," everyone brought it. amazing fight. the important thing is the two main fights of the knight, the light heavyweight fight.
10:17 pm
one of the winners will get a shot. the most impressive one at the light heavyweight title. who is it going to be? >> i couldn't agree with you more. there was a lot of talk about brandon vera coming in the fight. you can't put a ranking or a number on heart and determination. and you saw how bad that kid wanted it tonight. i'm -- i couldn't be happier for him. he fought like a warrior tonight. >> joe: he truly did. he fought with every ounce of his being. when he dropped, that is all he had left. he gave it all inside the octagon. beautiful performance. >> i agree 100%. now, the question everybody has been waiting for. here is the answer: the answer i think lyoto machido looked the most impressive tonight. lyoto machido right now seems to have this fire in him. he has this fire in him. he wants it. he wants that title back. he wants that shot at jon jones. everything i see in this guy's performance in the way that he acts and the things that he says shows me that he wants this title shot. and lyoto, you are going to get it buddy. >> joe: i couldn't be
10:18 pm
happier for that. i agree with you 100%. i thought his performance was spectacular. flawless. brilliantly faceded punch. he is the man. he is the guy to challenge, the only guy to win a round against jon jones. with some adjustments it could be spectacular fight. if jon jones gets through dan henderson. >> mike: thank you. i made that mistake earlier in week. >> he still has to fight dan henderson. and dan henderson is nasty. this guy is a legend-killer. he has knockout power on both hands. jones has to get through him first. whoever wins that fight. they will face machido. >> joe: if henderson when he is is arguably the greatest mixed martial arts fighter in the sport. he held two consecutive titles, strike force strikeout and knockout. an amazing fight and it's coming up. what is going to happen next is the winner will face lyoto "the dragon" machido for the light heavyweight title. back to you, curt, at the fox desk.
10:19 pm
>> curt: thanks, joe and dana white. our fans on the twitter poll thought lyoto machido deserved the next shot. dana white agrees. but randy you think rua was more impressive in the way he won tonight. >> randy: absolutely, in a five-round fight, championship territory, in the fourth round with an amazing performance by brandon vera, the brandon vera we are used to seeing three or four years ago. he let it hang out and threw everything but the kitchen sink at rua. rua weathered it and landed his own shots along the way and they both damaged each other. it was anism pressive victory. machido is an enigma in the sport at that weight class. nobody can nail him down and figure him out. bader was no different. it's always impressive what machido is able to do but i was more impressed by the guts and determination by rua tonight. >> curt: how do you see it? >> brian: i agree with dana white. machido is the guy. he did win a round against jon jones and the way he has come back after losing the tite to jon jones he is the most interesting matchup for dan henderson or jon jones.
10:20 pm
now it doesn't take anything away from the "shogun-"brandon vera fight. i agree with randy, it was an amazing performance by both guys. but i think for the fans and what is going to sell better, what is going to be the bigger pay-per-view it's lyoto machido versus the winner dan henderson-jon jones in my opinion. >> curt: that fight, henderson-jones is september 1. ufc 151. by the way, dan henderson will be live with the guys on fuel during the post-game show. he will talk about what he saw tonight. and probably, i'm guessing, somewhere along the way talk about the jon jones fight. all right, we know that is in the future. lyoto machido against one of those guys but here is a look ahead at what is happening next week in denver with the ufc lightweight title will be on the line. ♪ ♪ >> you are looking for finish. >> you can never count this kid out. >> not giving the belt up very easily. >> the gut kick! >> oh, no! >> crazy! what a fight! what a fight!
10:21 pm
>> i just want to beat him up for the second time. >> dan henderson will notdefend. i'm taking it back home. >> ufc lightweight title is on the line. ♪ ♪ >> curt: and that should be a good one. all right, the n.f.l. is back. fox's preseason coverage begins on thursday, august 16. as the bengals take on matt ryan and the falcons. then on friday, august 17, matt stafford and the lions head to baltimore to face off against ray lewis and the ravens. both begin at 8:00 eastern, 5:00 pacific on fox. up next, local news, followed by episodes of "touch" and "30 seconds to fame." check out fuel tv coming up next for the live post-fight show. dan henderson will be live with jay glazer and the gang. for randy couture, brian stann, and our entire fox crew, i'm curt menefee. you are watching the ufc on fox.
